    What is the track like?
    Pocono Raceway has long been recognized as one of NASCAR's most competitive tracks in the NASCAR circuit, featuring two NASCAR Cup races each year. The 2.5-mile tri-oval superspeedway has a unique design, with each of its 3 turns modeled after a different track in the US. Turn 1: (14-degree banking) is modeled after the former Trenton Speedway. Turn 2: (sometimes referred to as "The Tunnel Turn") reflects the 8-degree banking of the infamous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Turn 3: (6-degree banking) features aspects of the renowned Milwaukee Mile. Although referred to as a tri-oval track style, the Pocono Raceway's turns are more similar to a triangle shape, as its turns are much sharper than other typical tri-oval tracks (such as Daytona).

    The ride has checked off one more bucket list item. It’s given me a better idea of what it’s like to be in a race for 3 hours. Very cool experience.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Good morning, Steven! WOW! That IS very cool.  Thank you for sharing! Kasia
    It was an awsome experience and a adrenaline rush
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Good morning, Felipe! Wow, that's great! Thank you for sharing!  Cheers,  Kasia 
    My ride along was fantastic . . . I really got the sensation that I was just "on the edge" of getting to know the wall more up close & personal than I wanted to. All of the people were very kind, helpful & added to the overall great experience.
    Wonderful!

    Cheers! Kasia
    This was an amazing experience. I did the drive along with Shuan, it was so much much to see what it's to be on a race track. I would recommend this to anyone. The drive along was perfect for me as I am not one that likes to go fast, but it was nice to be in a car that did go fast just to experience the speed and the riding around the track.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Bobbi. A big thank you for sharing, and for the recommendation!  
    AWESOME ---- over to quick. Would do it again, recommend anyone who likes racing to give it a try. The ride along gave us a faster experience but the people who drove appeared just as happy.
    Maybe it's just me, but I thought 3 laps meant 3 FULL laps. I only counted 2 laps on the track (same as last year!). Just a little confused. Otherwise, a GREAT experience, will probably do it again next year.
    This ride was way way way better than I expected!!!!! What a thrill!!
    Definitely a great experience, it was just over too fast -- for the money I expected a little more.
    This was the coolest thing I have ever done. As soon as I got out of the car, I wanted to get the charge card and go for another round. Three laps goes so quickly. I guess that's the point, is to go fast. Not something I would do on my own. Can't wait for next year to do it again. My driver was very friendly, and the person helping me get buckled in was very funny. Thanks for a great experience.
    I did a 3-lap ride along at Dover (Monster Racing) last year and didn't think it could be much better. Wow, was I wrong! Dover did 1 lap in a van, so there were only 2 laps in the race car, and Dover is only a mile-long track. Pocono was 3 full laps in the car on a 2 1/2 mile track. What really made the whole experience even better was the friendly staff. The driver and the pit guy made conversation while I was being buckled in and actually seemed interested in how my ride went. My wife even had a ride along too. We started making plans for next year before we were off the track. Great job and THANK YOU!
    Even though I have driven a number of different race cars in the past, I looked forward to the ride along because I never had experienced the speeds we would reach. That was what made it so exhilarating. The staff that assisted me and the driver were all first rate. Perfect gift for auto racing enthusiasts!
    What a great experience being in a Nascar. The Driver was experienced and careful but ensured that it was exciting and worth the price. I would definitely recommend the experience. Also the Pocono raceway folks were awesome.
    Fantastic!
    My wife booked the stock car ride for me as a Christmas gift. I enjoyed it very much & we are planning to go back so that she can take a ride too. We've already told many friends how much fun it was & they are very interested in booking rides in the future.
    I am writing this instead of William. I purchased three Stock Car Ride Alongs for my son, nephew and son-in-law. We gathered as families at the Pocono Racetrack and it was a lot of fun. Lindsay Koch of Cloud Nine was excellent in answering my personal questions and concerns. I asked her to schedule us at a certain time together and she made it seem easy. FYI: maybe you know this but when you arrive at the track and sign up you can just get in line to take the ride with really no worrying about the appointment time. I also asked Lindsay a question about noise level given that we were bringing the kids and she found out for us. Even by email I got great customer service. Thanks again for a great family adventure.

    It was a great experience, one that I will always cherish. The only drawback is that it's over before you know it lol.The next step is to get behind the wheel. I have a new respect for the Pocono Raceway after this experience. Thank you very much Brian Comerford Sr Ps: the driver and the staff were excellent in the help they gave
    This was a Christmas gift I bought for my husband. We were both thrilled for the day to come when he would finally enjoy the ride along experience. I was pleased with the booking, the directions weren't that clear. I recommend adding an actual address to plot on your gps to avoid confusion. We were greeted rather quickly and the wait time for the car was not long at all. However, when my so that that was a plus husband came back from the ride I asked if he enjoyed it and he responded, "it was OK". He said that the driver only went up to 140-145 the least, and wasn't friendly and didn't bother to interact with him. He asked him a few questions but the driver's reply was that he had to pay attention to the ear radio and couldn't talk. I understand he had to pay attention while driving but at least some type of interaction or excitement from the driver would of helped with the experience.
    I had such a great time with my Birthday gift given to me by my wife. My wife did inform me that the Nascar ride was suppose to be 3-laps and NOT the 2- laps the driver took me on. Thanks, Jason Gonzalez
    Totally amazing experience. I loved the rush you get at 165 MPH! Can't wait to try again.
    Great adventure! Wonderful experience!
    I had a fantastic day with my family and I would do it all over again Thks for making it a great memory for me.
